The campus

The international Campus in Venlo is a young and modern campus with an old history. The campus is situated on the grounds of the former country estate De Wylderbeek, in whose forest one still can find protected artifacts from Roman times.

The campus is beautifully located between the nature reserve Maasduinen and the river Maas (Meuse), very close to the city centre of Venlo.

The campus has excellently equipped laboratories and workshops, modern and cheerfully designed lecture halls and classrooms as well as a full range of modern teaching and communication technology.

Having a free hour?

Students can spend time in between classes on campus.  When the day is sunny and warm students are chatting or studying, or simply enjoying the sun outside on the colorful chairs and sofas. Furthermore, the Lounge and Cafetaria are available to students to have lunch or simply meet up with friends. The nice atmosphere in the cafe gives you a comfortable feeling and lets you to forget about the typical university life. Nevertheless, if you would like to study in more quiet atmosphere, there are several student areas. You can sit in a common area or enter the cockpit (closed room with sound isolation) where no one will disturb you.

Multimedia Center (MMC)

Fontys gives you an opportunity to rent various devices (Laptops, cameras, voice recorders, presenters, beamers, ect.) by showing your student card at the MMC.  Here you can also find study books from which you are studying and rent them either for 1 day or one month. This is also a good place to sit down and do some of your homework.


The student accommodation is not on the campus itself, but in Venlo (in a range of 15 minutes by bike away from university) and Kaldenkirchen (in Germany). Accomodations in Venlo are new apartments built especially for students coming from abroad. If there are not enough places in these dormitories, Fontys finds a room offered by private landlords. These rooms are located within a 15 minute bike ride from the campus.
